“Eco Emporia were delighted when they were contacted by Vogue magazine to help highlight green fashion in June’s issue of American Vogue. Hollywood’s green queen Cameron Diaz talks about making eco sensitive shopping choices and models our stunning West End Fire Hose Belt whilst on a shoot with world renowned photographer Mario Testino.
“The belt is part of a collection of accessories made from decommissioned fire hose saved from landfill and transformed by the team at EaKo Ltd. All are handmade and unique, each bears the scars of active fire-fighting duty and many retain details of the original hose batch number and manufactuer’s name. All are made in the UK and even the belt buckles and rivets are made from 100% reclaimed pewter.
“The full range of 11 stylish eco-friendly belts, plus card holder wallet, wash bag, saddle bag and tote bag are available from online gift retailer Eco Emporia. What’s more 50% of profits made by EaKo Ltd from the sale of every item in the fire hose range are donated to The Fire Fighters Charity.”
